There’s this misconception that it takes long to get paint mixed. It’s not true! It only takes a few minutes, and maybe even less if you’re already armed with the Boysen Mix & Match tips and tricks. Here are bits of insider knowledge so you’re Mix & Match experience goes even smoother and faster.
Note the Color Code and Name
Every Mix & Match station will have swatches of the colors you can have mixed ready for you to browse. If ever you find a color you like even before you’re at a mixing station—say, you found it on this blog, the Boysen Facebook page, or the Boysen Instagram account—all you need to do is to take note of the color’s code and name.
Once you have the color code and name, show it to the mixing station staff on duty, but don’t have it mixed just yet. Ask to see a physical swatch first. Digital renditions of paint swatches can sometimes look different from the actual paint color. Because tech specs vary per device, the colors can look different depending on the screen you’re viewing it from
Know Which Base Paint Product You Want
You won’t just be picking a paint color at a Boysen Mix & Match station. You can also pick which base paint product you want. There are four paint products you can choose from. You can either go for Boysen Permacoat Latex, Boysen Healthy Home, Virtuoso Silk Touch, or Titan Superflex Elastomeric Paint.
Get to know which of these products suits your needs best so you already know what you want when you get to the mixing station. Alternatively, you can also ask the staff on duty about them.
Note that not all colors can be mixed as each of these products. Availability will depend on product formulation and stock. Again, you can ask the helpful staff if your chosen color can be mixed as your chosen paint.
